Trace of grain. Hops are a reasonable orange and orange peel. Mild hop spice. Light semi dry finish. Very serviceable APA.

On tap at Beer Deluxe, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out citrus hops and biscuity malt. Flavour is quite citric and astringent, with citrus hops, some fruitiness and biscuity malt. A bit jagged, but pretty decent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.
Looks: Clear golden honey colour; Three-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing with slight carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant Ale malt, with strong passion fruits, strong grapefruits, strong citrus peels, light cat piss, floral, sugar, strong pine, resins, biscuits, lemon oil and strong fresh grass.
Taste: Mid to strong sweet Ale malt, with grapefruits, hop oil, strong floral, caramel, sugar, pine, resins, biscuits, strong lemon, quite strong bitter hops and strong grass.
Body: Mid to full body. Oozy and oily palate.
Mouth Feel: Good Ale maltyness in a very slick background. Strong caramel and sugary but countered by loads of Simcoe / West Coast hoppiness as in oily citrus, grapefruits, piney resiny fresh grass. Almost like a West Coast IPA. Very nice!
Hoppiness: Passion fruits, grapefruits, strong citrus peels, cat piss, floral, pine, resins, lemon oil and fresh grass in nose. Grapefruits, hop oil, floral, pine, resins, strong lemon and strong grass in taste; Bitterness is quitestrong for a lasting, mid to high astringent sweet-bitter finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Oily citrusy and bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is way better than the whimpy Quickcharge XPA, at least it taste like a proper APA - thick strong body with good maltyness, lots of Simcoe and Cs hops for nice citrus aroma and fruity oily resiny taste. This is probably one of the boldest APA I’ve had, and what a treat it is. Yes!
